Is zapiekanka the best alternative to pizza ?

If you are visiting the wonderful town of Krakow in Poland, you should also visit the historic Jewish quarter, called Kazimierz. The area was destroyed during World War II and in the communist era gradually fell into disrepair. Rediscovered in the 1990s, thanks to the fall of communism and worldwide exposure, as the place where the movie Shiedler’s List was filmed, Kazimierz has become a lively neighbourhood packed with historical sites, cafes and art galleries. In the heart of Kazimierz, at Plac Nowy, you will see an historic round building called Okraglak. The stalls here sell a Krakowian street food known as zapiekanka (plural zapiekanki).
